The Detroit Tigers announced a few days ago that Brad Ausmus' contract will not be renewed after the season. It was not at all shocking breaking news.
Nobody ever asks the tough questions in the Tigers clubby, so I'm going to ask the toughest: Will Brad Ausmus be the most handsome coach to ever pencil a lineup for the Tigers in the history of the Tigers?
Debatable -- because Jim Leyland was kinda cute -- but nobody is talking about how ugly the coming seasons are going to be for the Tigers' dugout. Brad Ausmus was a handsome man and the Tigers' next manager will undoubtably be less attractive.
I mean, look at the top candidates to manage the Tigers next season:
Woof. I'll stop. These are some ugly coaching candidates. The Tigers are in trouble, huh?
If only we could unbutton back to the glory days.
